Balloon Sleeves

A few cute balloon sleeve sweater options…

 

Hey y’all, do you notice something different about me today? Let me give you a hint, I’m wearing color and I couldn’t be more excited! This is something that I’ve vowed to do more of, but for the girl who love neutrals it can be a tough habit to break…I’m just sayin’

Today’s outfit is all about the balloon sleeve. If you think about it, this look actually dates all the way back to the 1800’s  during the Victorian era. The look has been resurrected and is making a huge comeback this spring. I’m going to step out on the limb and say that I also think that Beyonce’s visual album Lemonade had something to do with it’s resurgence as well, because there were a lot of amazing balloon sleeve ensembles featured in the film.  Whatever the reason may be, it’s really cool to see how fashion seems to always come full circle.

For this look, I decided to keep things casual…pairing it with light jeans and a simple strappy block heel. I’m obsessed with the faux fur on the sleeve that I think adds a cool unexpected edge to this simple balloon sleeve top. My goal is to dress it up and show y’all how that looks as well, because there is SO much that you can do with simple pieces and I want to continue to show you how to get the most out of your wardrobe. More to come…
